There are over 20 island properties in the St. Lawrence River between Kingston and Brockville. Note: Unless otherwise stated, national park islands have docks, composting toilets, primitive campsites and walking trails; most have shelters. Interpretive programs on a variety of natural and cultural heritage topics are offered throughout the summer at various island and mainland locations. The park does not provide transportation to the islands. The park encourages a pack-in-pack-out policy throughout the park and most island locations do not have garbage facilities. Please help us protect and preserve these unique island locations.

Recycling and garbage pick-up available at five locations in park
Recycling and garbage collection will be available on McDonald, Beau Rivage, Hill (Batterman's Point) and Central Grenadier islands and at Mallorytown Landing. On all other islands, visitors will be responsible for packing out their own garbage.
The decision to offer garbage pickup at five park locations was reached due to financial assessment during the management planning process. In response to visitors' requests, recycling facilities has been added at the five locations where garbage is collected.
Visitors are encouraged to repackage food to reduce waste before heading out to the islands.
The cooperation of boating visitors and changes to garbage collection points over the past ten years has already begun to reduce the human footprint on the national park. Since 2001, garbage produced in the park has been reduced by 60 per cent.
All islands have walking trails and composting toilets.
The St. Lawrence River is renowned for its dangerous shoals; accurate nautical charts are essential for boating safety. Nautical charts may be purchased at private outlets listed on the website www.charts.gc.ca.
